“A DREAM A Part” is a short film about five Asian undocumented students and their lives living in the United States. These students are actively fighting for the passage of the DREAM Act, a piece of pending bi-partisan legislation that would provide undocumented students that arrived in the US before the age of 16 a pathway to legalization if they attend two years of college or serve two years of the military. These students are involved in ASPIRE (Asian Students Promoting Immigrant Rights through Education), the first and only undocumented Asian Pacific Islander youth group.
ASPIRE is a program of the Asian Law Caucus. The Asian Law Caucus is the nation’s first legal and civil rights organization serving the low-income Asian Pacific American communities. Its mission is to promote, advance, and represent the legal and civil rights of the Asian and Pacific Islander communities.
